Very nice and a much needed addon for smf. TP does this well but you can't put thing in order like you can with your mod. Do you plan on adding the "import" option so we can add bulk downloads via ftp?

I'm currently using TP download, is there a way we can transfer those links over to this without any hassle?

Yes there should be a link. You may need to do a manual install check out

And if you are using custom languages/themes the strings will need to be added to them as well.

gaak... sounds complicated.. but ill give it a try...

im actually using the default template...

what are the consequences of me uninstalling the mod and reinstalling it to see if it would fix the problem???

ok... so i tried editing the files manually according to the parser...

i found that i was missing the file i mentioned above and that all the rest of the files were modified correctly
except for the index.template.php... so i had to add this:

Code: [Select]
'downloads',
to this:

Code: [Select]
$current_action = 'admin';
if (in_array($context['current_action'], array('search', 'admin', 'calendar', 'profile', 'mlist', 'register', 'login', 'help', 'pm',,)))

so in the end it looks like this:

      
Code: [Select]
$current_action = 'admin';
if (in_array($context['current_action'], array('search', 'admin', 'calendar', 'profile', 'mlist', 'register', 'login', 'help', 'pm', 'downloads',)))


now everything is hunkydory and my download link on the menu bar is showing and i can see the downloads page...

but should i be worried that i am missing that Modifications.english-utf8.php ???

also... what is this for exactly? (in edit category)

Quote
Custom Fields
Field Title Default Value  Required 
Field Title Default Value Required Options


***

QUESTION: is it possible to restrict what kind of files can be uploaded?? 

I only want my members to be able to upload one kind of file...

please let me know... thanks!

***

and now that ive set my permissions (for guests to not view add edit etc. the downloads section)...

the unregistered guest still sees the empty category page with the header titles and stats (no download links of course)
Quote
Category Name Category Description Total Files
Download Stats
View Downloads Stats


which i think is rather hideous...

cant it just be like in the Gallery Mod where when the permission is set that guests cant view it... it just promps them to login or register??

Quote
Warning!
You are not allowed to view the Gallery

here is a screenshot of the downloads page from a guest view.

shouldnt it be a login page asking them to login in order to view the downloads?

As long as guests download view permission is not checked they should not view that page it is checked with this line of code
isAllowedTo('downloads_view');

i know...  ive set my permission so that guest CANNOT view the page...

(which is probably why its not showing the categories and download links)

i want it to just show the login page

please look at the screen shot closely... and read my inquiry closely.

THAT IS the guest view....

i want it to just show the login page

not the downloads page with the table header crap

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP !

I really enjoy this mod. i was using that other one with the directory structure. my only problem is we have hundreds of downloads and there doesnt seem to be a simple ftp upload option for the initial setup. that would mean that i have to manually add hundreds of files one at a time. after we get the initial upload done we dont mind using the one at the time feature. batch uploads would be so key right now.

can you provide me with the architecture of the upload process? maybe i can write a quick script to meet my needs or something. file & directory structure and database changes on creation would probably be key. thanks in advance.

also, the files are very large because a lot of them are live dj sets.

nice support on this one i see. lol j/k

i still love it and since it will take too much time for us to reupload everything we've decided to let our users have open access over the system. the only problem now is that they're all DJs and want to upload sets that are 100+ MB. it seems like it uploads but then it gives back an odd error: 'You need to enter a download title.'. there's a title for sure and when we use the same title but with a smaller file it works fine. any ideas? thanks in advance.
